DETAILS

Pipe Joint Testers

NTS carries a full line of Pipe Joint Testing equipment available for rent or sale. Pipe Joint Testers are used for fast, safe (and easy to use), five-second tests, which typically determines joint integrity. Our Cherne and Lansas joint testers are designed to test large-diameter RCP up to 120” as described in “ASTM C1103”. Ready to test with either water or air, the joint tester allows you to pre-test before the backfilling operation begins and is available in both low and high pressure models.

DETAILS

Manhole Vacuum Air Testers

NTS rents and sells a full line of manhole vacuum testers. Vacuum air manhole testers provide the most efficient, accurate and cost effective method of testing new, existing and rehabilitated manholes per “ASTM C1244”. Vacuum testing identifies infiltration and ex-filtration problems by creating a vacuum in the manhole and then monitoring for vacuum loss. This process is less expensive and much faster than water testing. Bladder style testers seal the inside diameter of the manhole cone. The flat plate style tester is designed to seal the manhole cone top surface. The vacuum generator style converts a standard air compressor into a vacuum source.

DETAILS

Deflection Gauges & Mandrels

Pipe deflection gauges are used to test sewer pipe for out-of-roundness or deflection. The use of these gauges helps ensure that flexible pipe has been properly bedded and backfilled. NTS offers mandrels in single and multi-size kits from 4” thru 24” made from steel or aluminum for SDR 35 or SDR 26 pipe thicknesses.

DETAILS

Forced Smoke Pipe Test

NTS rents and sells smoke blower testers and accessories. Smoke blower testers effectively identify leaks in pipes through the use of a manhole fan blower powered with a Honda or Briggs & Stratton gasoline engine. The system utilizes either traditional smoke cartridges and or the bio-degradable liquid smoke product, which is available upon request.
